Get Involved!
We need 100 young musicians, singers or bands to help us raise money by showcasing their talent at the Music Marathon and gathering sponsorship for their performance.   Music lovers, friends and family can help by sponsoring a young musician, coming to the event or making a donation.   Businesses and philanthropists can show their support as an event sponsor.

encore is the fundraising network for all the young musicians supported by Brighton & Hove Music and Arts (BHMA).   Over 4000 young people of all abilities are taught by us each week in every Brighton & Hove school.  Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival is a charity that creates, presents and hosts 600 events with an audience of 600,000, including 20,000 people directly benefitting from our creative learning work each year.   BDBF and BHMA became one organisation on 1 July 2017.

Together we provide music and arts education, performance and touring opportunities for children and young people city-wide.

With your help, the Music Marathon will provide support for:

  • The Hardship Fund for young musicians who could not otherwise afford to be involved in music making and lessons.  This includes attending orchestras, ensembles and going on tour.
  • Orchestra 360 inclusive ensemble with specialist teaching, adapted instruments and performance opportunities.
  • Master-classes offering talented young musicians individual tuition that could make all the difference to their future career.
  • Specialist Instruments purchase and maintenance for all our ensembles.
  • Spectrum music events, nurturing local music talent and providing affordable concerts in a professional setting
  •         Bespoke creative learning projects working with young musicians.
